Connecting the Dots with Mark Shea

The Podcast for Connecting the Dots with Mark Shea, and guest Matt Swain is up for your listening pleasure. (I'm there too).  

We discuss amongst other things, fifteen days dedicated to Prayer for Christian Unity.  We tend to think such things might involve platittudes or what you would find on the back of a car bumper.  The reality is much more about being authentic witnesses to Christ with all people, and discovering we are both our brother's keepers, and they are ours.   We have far more which unites us (say performing the corporeal and spiritual acts of mercy), than divides.

It isn't an act of betrayal of the faith to see in the faiths of others, a genuine devotion and zeal, and a divine spark of curiosity about both how we are to live now, and who we want to know forever. Laced in the hearts of every person, is a desire to be loved and not merely liked or tolerated.  We want to be embraced as the sons and daughters of the King, to hear "Well done, good and faithful servant," when we're finished with all of this, and to know when someone else heard us, saw us, worked with us, shared bread with us, they saw in our joyful witness, something of Divine love.  Matt Swain is working with the Coming Home Network to invite all people of Christian persuation to pray for a greater understanding amongst the faith denominations about the who we all worship, and how we are to treat each other.  If you're interested in finding out more, Here's where to go.
